Hydro Tasmania Catagunya AC Upgrade

Share This Post


In order to bring the site AC systems up to modern electrical standards prior to the Secondary Systems Upgrade at Catagunya Power Station, Hydro Tasmania commenced a project with RBD Electrical to upgrade existing lighting, power and AC distribution systems. The upgrade covered almost all areas of the station, dam and headworks. RBD upgraded various components of the installation including the feed from the Station Services Transformer, replacement of the MSB (with generator inlet) and all AC distribution boards and downstream circuits.

Due to the upcoming major upgrade, the project required extra resourcing to complete works on a tight schedule and for the installation to account for the expected changes to the site. Further, the station remained operational and had concurrent works underway, requiring care and consideration to avoid interruption and work safely.

The project achieved its goals and went through a seamless handover thanks to the use of RBD’s accredited quality assurance process and conscientious management and site supervision.
